These speakers were purchased brand new from an authorized dealer January 2012 and have extremely low hours on them. They are flawless cosmetically and sonically and have been utilized in a smoke, child, pet free environment. The speaker grills are boxed up, therefore not pictured. The speakers will be repackaged in original boxes and include the owner's manual and copy of sales receipt. I am the original owner and take extremely good care of my things. These are absolutely as good as new but I will rate a 9 since they have been opened and used very little. I hate to lose these gems, but unfortunate circumstances force sell. My loss, your gain.
